Love fruit beers. Wanted something in Canada like the Thomas Kemper, and by george, I found it! What a great summer beer.

Pours a nice cherry color with a light pink head. Strong fruity/rasberry aroma. Malty tasting brew with rasberry accents highlighted by a smooth aftertaste.

This is a good raspberry beer, that may even be able to be kicked up a notch if a similar yeast like Erdinger was used...
It has a very dry finish, not unpleasant, and it goes great with a salad. One of my favorites from the brewery. I had some on tap at Original Joes in Kensington during Stampede, and it went down quickly while I was sitting on their patio under the late afternoon sun...

The raspberry flavour and smell is exactly like a fresh raspberry from the pricly bushes. This is a beer first and a rasperry beer second. The fruit flavour is very noticable but not overpowering. However there is a definite distinction between the two flavours, almost like they are fighting to be noticed but neither wants to steal all the attention.

To uderstand this beer you must understand "patio," season. It is a real nice hot weather ale with a pink dusty gold appearance. you will usually get the "North American," pour, which is headless( what a shame). There is a slight nose of raspberry, and a tart blonde ale flavor. It is easy on the palate and great in teh Summer. Personally I do not even like fruit beers, but this one is done right. It leaves the "BEER" in fruit beer.

Poured a dark peach color (tinge of pink in straw)....medium carbonation... Had a chunky 2 finger cap that laced out quickly and clings to the glass through the drink (about what you'd expect from a brewer that simply bottles their draft beers). Aromas of berries, and grassy hop...sweet malt as well. Started fairly tart, light (almost watery) sweetish body that finishes with a decent bready aftertaste punctuated with a twang of berry tartness....a nice light summer drink but for my preferences I’d rather see Wild Rose shelve this one as a seasonal and put the cherry porter into year round production.

Fresh raspberry character over lightly tart wheat. Clear, pale copper coloured body is topped by a low white head that recedes slowly to ring. Sweet undertone to the tart wheat raspberry combination that works quite nicely although the aftertaste is a bit "jammy" . Medium light body has decent carbonation that lightly prickles the tongue. Sampled on tap at the brewery tasting room.

(Draught) Sampled on February 10, 2008, at the brewpub. Strange reddish copper body with a quick dissipating, creamy white head. Nose is mildly raspberry but the flavour is very bland as if each taste cancels themselves out.

Wow. Great nose. Absolutely beautiful wrasp...err raspberries with a lacing of sugar cane. A pale to orange colour with a hint of pink. Light raspberry mouth, not nearly as much as I expected. Some flower....and not much else. What happened here? It almost feels as if the true flavours are being held back by something. Did I aquire an off-bottle? Crisp enough, but entirely too light. A mixed bag. I’ll have to try another.
